Two Palestinians killed in Israeli airstrike


Two Palestinians were reported killed when Israel’s Air Force fired on terrorists that the military said were planning to launch rockets into southern Israel.

The Air Force told Israeli media that it knew the group was planning the attack and planned its strike, which took place Tuesday, before the group was able to launch any rockets toward Israel.

Another Palestinian reportedly was wounded in the attack. It was not known with which terrorist organization the group was associated.

Israel typically retaliates for attacks on its territory rather than launching pre-emptive strikes.

The Israeli military last hit a target in Gaza, a smuggling tunnel, in June in response to rocket fire on southern Israel.
